Democrat Joe Biden, elected by the President of the United States, said that he would devote his first hundred days of work as head of state to migration reform and the fight against coronavirus.

In an interview with NBC, Biden said that he intends to send an immigrant law to the Senate, which "will open the way to citizenship for 11 million undocumented people".

"The politician added that he intends to cancel some decrees of the current US President Donald Trump, which, in his opinion, have caused damage to the climate and human health", - RIA Novosti reported.

Biden pledged that he would not pursue his predecessor in the presidency, Donald Trump. Instead, he intends to focus on work that will allow Americans to regain confidence in themselves.

Biden, who served as vice president under his party member Barack Obama, has assured that his presidency will not become Obama's "third term". He stressed that during Trump's rule America has changed so much that he will have to make every effort to work for the good of the country.

The US presidential election was held on November 3. By November 23, the counting of votes in all states was to be completed. The final results have not yet been announced, but it is already clear that Biden received enough electoral votes to win. Long before the announcement of the final results, the heads of several states sent their congratulations to Biden on his election to the presidency.

For a long time, Trump did not agree to admit his defeat and initiated lawsuits for the recount of votes in principal states. However, political analysts believe that Trump has no chance. Realizing this, Trump ordered the transfer of power to Biden the day before. Biden's inauguration will traditionally take place on January 20.
